My family love food from every corner of the world through the fact i kinda make them try new things which they never complain about. This is one of the faves and i know it will be one of your! Give it a try, the flavours are so good! I tweaked this as i do all my recipes to fit needs.

For the paste:

1tsp paprika

1tsp turmeric

1tsp cumin

1tsp salt

3 garlic cloves

Thumb size piece of ginger

olive oil

For the casserole:

4 chicken breasts

1 lemon, thinly sliced

Pinch of saffron strands

Handful of pitted green olives

Handful of fresh coriander, chopped

2 onions, chopped

olive oil

450ml chicken stock

To make the spice paste, place all the ingredients except the oil into a pestle and mortar or spice blender and grind to a paste, add just enough oil to make the paste runny but at the same time it will coat the chicken breast.

Rub the paste all over the chicken breast then into a bowl, cover and leave to marinate for a good couple of hours but overnight if possible.

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat until softened, add the chicken breast and colour on both sides for about 4-5 minutes each side. Add the chicken stock and lemon slices then stir in the saffron and season to taste (can be seasoned well this dish). Bring to the boil then down to a simmer for 30 minutes. Add the olives, fresh coriander and serve!
